Great food- decent service! – My husband and I frequent O'Connors. I've never had a meal there that I didn't think was fabulous. They also have a great wine list that isn't too pricey. My husband LOVES their hush puppies and I love their Multnomah melt. Our servers are always really nice, the only times our service is dicey is at time when the restaurant's busy and they happen to be understaffed (not the servers fault). Overall I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great meal and good drinks!
Good hushpuppies are not enough!!! – My husband and I went to O?Connor?s the other night for dinner. We had been there years before and were in the area so thought we would try it again. The only thing I remembered were the hushpuppies. After a visit last year to the South, I am in love with hushpuppies and O?Connor?s are some of the best in town. They were big, round and dense with the perfect corn consistency and served with a spicy jalapeno onion relish. That is where the love stops. My husband and I both read the reviews prior to going and had seen what other people?s complaints were. Our service was fine. Our waitress was nice enough and we weren?t forgotten, but they definitely don?t go out of their way to be friendly. I had the Cajun chicken club sandwich which was nice; however, a little lacking in the chicken. Only one side of the sandwich actually had any chicken. My husband?s burger was just okay. You can probably get better burgers a lot of other places. The kicker for us was the soda we ordered. It was served in a glass full of ice slightly larger than a juice glass and for $1.50 you do not get any refills. Seriously? Not even a can?s worth of soda for $1.50? Crazy. I think I will continue looking for great hushpuppies around town.
horrible – Both the food and the service are terrible. A guy on the plane recommened this place and I wish I had gone somewhere else.
I love O'Connor's. I go there often and I was surprised to read some of the reviewers who hate the staff. I LOVE the staff! It is true that on occasion the place has seemed a little under-manned, but the wait-people has always been great every time I have been there. I will agree that there seems to be a problem there with who will answer the phone.. sometimes I have been there and the phone rings on and on and no one answers it. That is a little disconcerting but quite honestly I have gotten used to it. This place sure isn't Olive Garden..it is quirky and I for one love the non-homogenized atmosphere. The food is always dependably good and interesting. I'd give it five stars, but there is that ringing phone.
Always Good – We've been going to O'Connor's at least once a week for nearly a year and a half, for breakfast and dinner, and never experienced any of the problems above. Yes, there can be a wait when it's busy. We go at eight am on the weekend and avoid the rush, after seven weeknights. Faves: one of the few places in town that serves nearly authentic cajun. Cajun oyster club, always good. Open till two on the weeknights, perfect for an after concert dinner or nightcap. Great Manhattan, too, their bartender knows what he's doing. So, all I can say, go in with a positive attitude, and you'll get great service and food. Never been disappointed.
Good food - Service can be hit-and-miss – My husband, daughter and I go to O'Connors for weekend breakfast at least twice a month. Our food and service have always been excellent (yummy home-fries!) but previous commenters are right - the servers can be moody. More than once we've seen our speedy and genial server become sullen and downright rude when addressing other patrons....I don't know what it is but I'm glad we've been lucky thus far (knock on wood).
Great Service and Ambiance.. food touch and go! – The 1st time I went here I had the best breakfast Experience. Joe's Omelet! It was big, stuffed, fluffy - cooked just right (not over done & krispy on outside). The service was great. Home fried potatos yummy. But I brought a friend and went a 2nd time & it was shwag! The corned beef hash was home made but had this weird anise flavor. The home fried potatos were cold and tasted like they were in a pan w/ pine sol residue. I asked for some new ones & what I got was reheated potatoes - same stale, pine sol flavor. The hush puppies were home made, pretty good but could have been cooked a little longer. I did really like their jalapeno jelly!
I was really disappointed the 2nd time. Yes it was busier, but we did not get the great service I got the 1st time. Our tables were not set when we were seated. Had to ask for spoons to stir the coffee...etc..
They had (have??) great potential but I probably won't go again
Great spot for breakfast – We have eaten at O'Connor's several times in the past few weeks and the food and service have been great. The breakfast menu is extensive, with both traditional and creative choices. The server was friendly and efficient. We will be returning many more times.
Conventional drinks mix with the congenial mood at this established pub in hip Multonomah Village. – In Short
This three-roomed, wood-paneled spot has long been a popular neighborhood hangout. While the mostly upscale 30-and-older crowd angles for tables at the popular adjoining restaurant, a wall of windows affords views of passing shoppers from inside the bar. Patrons vary drink choices between decent martinis and cheap pints of the 10 beers on tap, mostly Northwest brews. Bar bites range from savory steamers to fried calamari.
I have been to O'Connors about five times now for breakfast and I love this place. The breakfast specials are very creative with the ingredients and the food has always been excellent. The only draw back is the service is not that goos but the food and Boloody Mary's are worth it.
